BioSerendipity Feedback

“It was really a pleasure working with Nancy at Science Signaling in the past. She always went further than the usual journal editing process and always tried to make the manuscript more clear for the general reader. So I didn’t doubt to contact her at BioSerendipity to edit my grant proposal. She did a really great job, making it more accessible, clear and with an excellent flow. Her comments and suggestions were spot on and she finished the project right on schedule.” – Marcelo P. Coba, University of Southern California, California

“Having worked with Nancy Gough at Science Signaling in the past, I was very excited to work with her again. Nancy did an incredible job editing my grant. She worked hard to make it easy for me to incorporate her edits and suggestions into my normal LaTeX process. She turned the project around very quickly and was extremely detailed. I’ll be forever grateful to her for catching a critical error that surfaced in a figure.” – Kristen Naegle, Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri

“Thank you very much for wonderful editing! Your editing is absolutely different from the ones we have ever had, and I really enjoyed reading your suggestions and comments. I am sure that your editing makes our manuscript much improved and convincing.” – Shinya Kuroda,  University of Tokyo, Japan

Science Signaling Editor Feedback

“I was so blessed to have Nancy as my editor. Not only did her guidance elevate my paper, but she also went beyond her editorial duties and explained the entire scientific publishing process and how to shape a meaningful message to the reader. I drew on my lessons from Nancy when I wrote subsequent manuscripts and presentations as her explanation of how to cater to the scientific audience resonated with me. I am forever grateful to her for generosity in sharing her considerable expertise for such a comprehensive introduction to the world of scientific publishing and communications.” – Heather Bowling
